‘Anything can happen’ – Celtic fans react as Chris Sutton delivers Europa League verdict on Twitter

The Celtic fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping for a vastly improved European campaign in the Europa League next year. 

Although Celtic were drawn into an extremely competitive group alongside PSG and Bayern Munich in the Champions League this season, the Hoops faithful propping up the bar here were disappointed to crash out with just 3 points to their name. However, Brendan Rodgers’ side managed to finish third in the group and scrape through into the Europa League despite their low points total.

The Celtic supporters discovered who they will face in the last 32 of the competition earlier today after the draw for the Europa League saw their side pitted against Russian giants Zenit Saint Petersburg.

Celtic’s former hero Chris Sutton took to Twitter to state his belief that the Scottish Champions have been handed a difficult tie for the next stage of their European adventure.

However, plenty of the Celtic supporters have correctly pointed out that both legs of their tie against Zenit will be played during winter break of the Russian Premier League – a factor which should give The Bhoys a significant advantage.

Regardless of the potential rustiness of Zenit’s squad, Celtic fans are fully expecting a tough couple of matches against a side who previously won the competition when it was known as the Uefa Cup back in 2008.

Here’s what the fans had to say in response to Christ Sutton’s Twitter post…
